The use of a spatial-spectral pulse in the presence of a
static non-linear shim gradient has been proposed for
reduced FOV excitation, in particular for exciting thin
disc-shaped regions at isocenter. In this work, we
extend the method to excite regions at an arbitrary
locations and of arbitrary slice thicknesses, allowing
for accelerated 2D or 3D high-resolution imaging.
